Another addition to the collection…..


The other day while out and about

I picked up another scale at an antique shop.

This is how the cabinet in

the laundry room looked before.

Two scales was nice but I thought three would look better……

Here is the new scale….it was a great find at $15.

scale 002


I also picked up another great find for the laundry room

while at the same antique shop.

You can see it in the corner of one of the pics.

 Can you guess what it is?

Three is definately better than two - they look great !

Andrea said...

beautiful! I love your entire display in your laundry room. It sure inspires me with how to decorate our laundry room (a room we have yet to really address since moving into our home 9 months ago)

Inspired by you said...

I just love your home. Love the scales!

Des: Your laundry room look just like a laundry room should look. Clean and pretty! Those 3 scales are just perfect. I need a big re-do in my laundry room!!..Happy Friday..Judy

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

The two looked good there, Des, but three looks better than two! There is a nice balance to your scales. Love the display you've got on the whole shelf piece, too.

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

That is a very pretty vignette in the cabinet!! Totally love it!

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

Perfectly displayed.

Is it the cart on bottom right or a new wooden bowl on top left on top of cabinets?

I think it is a cart though?

Have a great weekend!

Judy said...

i love those scales des...i found one a couple of years ago and am always looking for more but they must be really popular around here b/c i very seldom see any that i like.

have a great weekend!

I see something in the corner of the second photo - looks galvanized, but I can't make it out - so I'll not guess and just wait til you show us! :)

I'd be doing laundry all the time if I had a room like that! The cabinet looks very elegant with the scales and ptichers.

Kelly said...

Love your new scale. It looks great added with your others. I can see a glimpse of something in the corner, but not quite sure what it is. Can't wait till you show it.

Anne said...

I love all the of the scales.And is it a laundry cart I spy?

Bliss said...

I picked up my scale years ago tucked in the back under ugly junk in an antique booth. It was $5 and I thought it must be really bad if no one wanted it for that price, so almost didn't get it. Silly me!

Hi Des,
Ohhh, so that's where you keep them?!Great idea. I love scales! And three is definitely the magic number.
A mystery, hummm!
I guess one of those carts like the use in the mailrooms? Maybe...
